  1. 2nd one and last one. both describe melancholia clearly. the 2nd image shows everything black and white, no ‘fun’ or ‘vitality’, the person is void of personality, even the weather is dull, dark, wet, and chill. the final image shows what should be an image full of life, vim, and vigor, a tree. but this tree is not a tree full of life. it is a tree drooping, leaning, sagging. as if all its efforts are barely enough to keep it from falling to its death. it barely survives.

  2. all of them… and I got nothing more than “they are just really incredible”…
